My March was incredible good and now I’m very motivated to continue my reading habits like that. I guess my April TRB is a little too ambitious, but I will try my best.
So this month I plan to read 9 books and listen to 5 audiobooks.
Edit: 4/10: I guess my goal was waaaay to ambitious….

Oh dear, I was definitely too eager with my reading pile last months. I planned to read sooo much and did actually only read 1 book and listened to 2 audiobooks. Ups.
I’m about halfway through Illuminae and I really like the book but I guess I just been to distracted (by netflix) and got into a reading slump…
The book I read was Still by Zoran Drvenkar and I listened to The Ciphers of Muirwood and The Void of Muirwood both by Jeff Wheeler.
Anyway, I won’t be doing a TBR for December and just see what will happen.
As for the books I got: I bought 4 books and got 2 for review.
Carry On – Rainbow Rowell
Legacy of Kings – Eleanor Herman
Illuminae – Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff
Harry Potter & The Philosopher’s Stone – J.K. Rowling
The Three Graces – Michele Wolfe
Under The Dusty Moon – Suzanne Sutherland
Yeah…I admit it, I have gone totally crazy in July… But to my defense, my local bookstore dealer had discount so I just couldn’t resist. Some books were as cheap as 1€ and some even free. Yay!

I have first seen this book last summer in a bookstore in Berlin and the word “Finnland” basically got my attention. And c’mon, the cover is kinda catchy too. For quite a while I was sneaking around the it, not sure whether to buy or not to buy it since I often feel I’m too old for middle grade-ish books. But at the end I got it and I don’t regret it.
“Sentimentalism is not for Finn. She’s busy enough finding the place where she belongs – between the commune incl. dog and shockingly attractive “Brother honorary” of her writing father and her mother’s apartment with urological partner and a Mr Spock giant poster. And while she is busy keeping these two completely opposite worlds together, not dealing too much with the bitches in her school and meet the expectations of her first boyfriend, her best friend Collie falls in love on an Internet portal. What at first looks like an absurd online relationship soon becomes a trial for their friendship.”**
